The Victorian-era mansion was the home of beer baron Captain Frederick Pabst. It has been closed due to COVID-19 for more than a year now.

During that time, staff and contractors undertook the largest restoration project in the building's history: rewiring the entire electric system in the home.

During the restoration, one of the original alarm systems for the house was uncovered. That piece of history will be on display.
